Prevent the Preventable During Pregnancy and Child Birth
Prevent the preventable during pregnancy and childbirth through education and testing for syphilis. Safe sex is still needed through use of condoms even while pregnant if you are not in a fully monogamous relationship and unfortunately, even if you think you are it is better safe than sorry to at least get tested in 1st and 3rd trimester and also during childbirth. Even while pregnant you can be treated for syphilis, possibly saving that child from life long deficits or even death. Syphilis has made a drastic return in the past 5 years and education is needed to encourage testing and safe sex practices.
